Medical Malpractice

We have represented doctors, nurses, dentists, hospitals and podiatrists in malpractice cases since the early 1960's. From 1960 to 1970 we represented virtually every hospital which then comprised the Association of Hospitals of Greater New York. These included Lenox Hill, Manhattan Eye and Ear, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital for Cancer and Allied Diseases, Beekman Downtown Hospital, Long Island College Hospital, Booth Memorial, Flushing Hospital and others. Additionally, we have been lead attorneys in medical products liability and prescription drug liability cases. We have represented doctors, dentists and nurses at Professional Misconduct and Disciplinary Hearings in New York.

Presently, we represent the largest professional malpractice insurance company in the country - Medical Liability Mutual Insurance Company. We also defend medical malpractice actions for the State Liquidation Bureau, Academic Health Professionals Insurance and Medical Malpractice Insurance Pool.

Within the framework of our defense of hospitals, we have participated, very actively, in risk management, appropriate record keeping, prompt analysis of records involved in potential future claims and similar preventive and early warning procedures. We have appeared as excess and personal counsel for physicians in malpractice cases. Among the attorneys on our staff, one is a registered nurse. The firm partners have appeared in risk management video presentation for our carriers.
